Shot put

The shot put is an Olympic discipline both male and female and for this technique and equipment must comply with regulations that allow the correct execution and validity.
The discipline consists in throwing as far as possible a metal ball (weight) from a platform, with a protective cage around it. The rules to be followed are similar, if not equal, to those for other throwing disciplines. The winner will be determined by considering the longest throw of the three available. Obviously the winner is the participant who has made the longest.
Let’s see what must be the characteristics that the shot put ball must respect. As in all sports you must definitely differentiate between male and female shot put ball, as they differ in size and weight.
For men, the weight must respect the 110-130 mm of diameter for a weight of 7.26 kg.
For women instead we switch to a diameter of 95-110 mm for a weight of 4 kg.
The shot put ball is made of iron, brass or other metals. For the shot put training or unregulated internal competitions we also have non bouncy synthetic rubber balls with different weights.

All shot put equipment

The shot put is a discipline of athletics that together with throwing the hammer, javelin and disc, form the disciplines of the launches. As in all these disciplines, even for the shot put is essential physical performance, strength, good technique but also the right equipment.
In addition to the ball (weight) for the shot put the athlete both in competition and during a workout needs additional equipment. It is essential to use a platform of about 2.135 meters, a limit within which the athlete can no longer exceed during the run-up and launch, under penalty of exclusion or penalty during the competition.
